Dawson County Tiger Wrestling

A fanpage for Dawson County Wrestlers and our fans to show their support.


Wrestlers that were not able to make the meeting, Future Tigers, Wrestling Parents and the Wrestling Community.

The High School has decided to change things up and I will no longer be the Boys Coach for the High School. They have approached me with the task of beginning the new Girls Program which will be an exciting opportunity. Though it is a distinct possibility that I will take the offer, we are still hashing out the details regarding the Girls, so I have not yet accepted the opportunity. I am sure the new coach will do an amazing job. Thank you all for your support over the past 20 plus years through both the good and the bad. I love you all and you will always be my family. Please feel free to darken my doorstep anytime for anything and as always, Go Tigers!!! Haynes
